Weekly update of meaningless polls- BU #9

In this week's edition of meaningless polls BU jumped up two and three spots to improve to #9 nationally in both the USCHO and USA Today polls. This climb is a result of two wins this past weekend and the Terriers taking six out of their last seven. Here is the rest of the top 10 and other notables in the USCHO poll and their USA Today ranking if different

1. Minnesota-Duluth 12-3-3- Duluth holds onto the #1 which I'm cool with since ChrisCo's brother plays there.
2. Minnesota 14-5-1
3.(4) Boston College 12-6 -It's funny how they can lose to Lowell in their only game of the week and not lose a spot here.
4.(3) Ohio State 13-4-1
5. Merrimack 10-2-2- A win against UVM and tie to Colgate kept Merrihack 5th in the polls as they fight through some injuries
6. Notre Dame 11-6-3
7. Colorado College 9-5-0
8. Western Michigan- 9-4-5
9. BU 10-5-1 - Jumps back into the top 10 heading into the break after winning 6 of their last 7 and showing the ability to be one of the best teams in the nation
10.(11) Ferris State- 11-6-1
14. Denver 7-6-3
17. Lowell 10-5-0- Cue whining from Lowell today as their fans are unable to put together that just because you go from the worst team in college hockey to respectable doesn't put you in the top 10 of the polls. The fact they are still whining today is even funnier considering they lost to unranked Northeastern this weekend.
18. North Dakota 9-8-1

Receiving Sympathy Votes-

Here also are the Pairwise rankings where BU comes in 5th and the INCH power rankings where BU jumped up to 11 even though they have Colgate and Union ahead of them for who knows what reason. Those jokes play in the EZAC.

Also, the Hockey East Weekly Press release came out today naming BU goalie Kieran Millan player of the week for posting a .967 save percentage over the weekend in the 2 wins. BU was also named the team of the week. Corey Trivino, Alexx Privitera, Sahir Gill, Adam Clendening, and Chris Connolly were all named as top performers for their stellar play over the weekend.
BU as a team has reached 10 wins in the first half for the first time since 08-09. It is a fucking good time to be a BU fan right now. Let's keep it going in the second half beginning with those other catholic fucks out in Indiana on New Year's Eve. Also, surprise surprise the Parker haters have gone quiet for some time now. The way it should be.
